Special Counter To Issue Passports For Overseas Jobs


(MENAFN- NewsIn.Asia)

Colombo, August 17 (NewsWire) – A special counter will be introduced at the Department of Immigration and Emigration from Monday (22) to provide passports for Sri Lankans expecting to urgently travel overseas for employment.

Due to high demand, people have been forced to wait for a period of at least two months to make an appointment at the department's office in Battaramulla to obtain a new passport for overseas employment.

Minister of Foreign Employment Manusha Nanayakkara said that Sri Lankans required to travel overseas urgently for employment are being severely affected as a result.
